(PRWEB) June 7, 2005
Today 2ndSite Inc (http://www.recurring-billing.net), a leading provider of online invoicing services, and Landmark Merchant Solutions (http://www.landmarkmerchant.com), a rapidly growing merchant account provider, announced a strategic partnership. The partnership aims to improve the merchant account application process.
Many small businesses are sensitive to cash flow and strapped for time. Applying for a merchant account can be a lengthy process. It can stretch out over weeks or months as small business owners get the necessary documents prepared for various stages of the approval process.
Many small businesses only have a handful of staff, or consist of only the owners themselves. As a result, these very small businesses are deterred by the merchant account setup process banks demand. From the point of view of many small businesses, applying for a merchant account can be inconvenient and time consuming. ÂLandmark Merchant Solutions has listened closely to the needs of our merchants and designed a merchant account program that overcomes [these] obstacles. The Landmark program reduces the merchant account approval process to three hours and lowers setup fees for 2ndSite users,Â says Michael McDerment, President of 2ndSite Inc.
Â2ndSite is a good partner for Landmark Merchant Solutions because, just like Landmark, 2ndSite targets businesses in their early stages,Â says Joe Garza VP of Marketing at Landmark Merchant Solutions.
Landmark further eases the process of building and maintaining a business by offering a free business web site to its customers. Landmark will even host the site for free, and make it e-commerce enabled. Landmark's state-of-the-art credit card processing and free web site, combined with 2ndSite's online invoicing, offers businesses a true turn-key solution to merchant payment acceptance.
